difference between quality render high and high optimized

Hi,
In aspect HD, when we do a CF avi rendering, we have the choice of the quality between :
- high quality
- high quality optimized
- medium...

"optimized" seems to produce a larger file than high;

what's the difference ?

Cedric.

One can produce a larger higher quality file. :)

Quality order : Low, Medium, High, High Opt, Filmscan1, Filmscan2.

Internally "High" was for real-time HDSDI ingest of older AMD Opterons, but now that we have new Intel hardware we added "High Optimized" to generate high quality output on the newer PCs.

David, functionally, for our up-rezed V1 input, as we often do heavy post color correction and FX, is there really any difference between High and anything "higher"?

We've had some probs with "High opt".,but "Filmscan1" sometimes seems a tiny bit better with certain types of material. For this up-rezed HDV stuff, though, can't tell a zip of difference!

For more detail/noise in the source the more Filmscan modes add value.
